The senator representing Ondo North, Prof. Ajayi Borrofice, has said the Senate will not delay the approval of President Muhammadu Buhari’s ministerial list.
He said the senators have sworn to an oath of office to do according to the mandate given to them by the people.
There have been speculations that senators loyal to Senate President Bukola Saraki may not approve ministerial nominees to “pay back” the Presidency.
The lawmaker spoke with reporters at his hometown in Oka, Akoko Southwest Local Government Area.
Boroffice said if one of the Senate’s duties is to approve the ministerial list, it will amount to delimitation of duty if it refused to do so because of Saraki’s saga.
He added that approval of ministerial list by the Senate is a constitutional requirement.
